OPI | Embarca-Dare Ya!
Today I'm reviewing these little pots of metallic foils by the Born Pretty Store. This set comes with 12 different foils ranging from silver, gold, cool-toned gold and warm-toned bronze. Using this decoration was definitely reminiscent of gold leaf that I used as a kid on art projects. In fact, I'm pretty sure you would be able to buy the same sort of thing at your local craft stores -- but Born Pretty Store is always the most cost effective option.
I started off with 2 coats of Embarca-Dare Ya! which I thought would work really well with the warm-toned bronze foil. While the polish was still damp, I used some tweezers to break off chunks of foil and placed them on the tips of my nails. I then gently smoothed down the foil with my other hand being careful not to lift up or break the foil.
I typically never use topcoat on chrome/metallic polishes or nail art decals because the topcoat mutes the mirror finish.
